Japanese tuner reimagines Honda NSX hybrid in a black carbon racing suit
The second-gen Honda NSX is close to retirement (and shambling slowly to it popularity-wise), but ARTA Mechanics decided to give it a proper body kit before it becomes history.
The kit is called Legavelo, and you could see it on the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this month. The Japanese tuner plans to produce only five units prioritizing pure track performance and aerodynamics over appearances. The carbon fiber body kit incorporates two bumpers, fenders, a hood, skirts, a tailgate, a rear wing and even a new gas tank hatch. The roof also enjoys a lightweight carbon construction, while the b-pillars are redesigned for efficiency.
The inside space of the track-focused exclusive piece is replete with suede, carbon fiber and silver accents. Power still comes from the usual part-electric system rated at 581 PS (573 hp / 427 kW), but the exhaust system is new.
Opting for the whole kit will set you back ¥25,300,000, or over $222,000 USD. The car itself and the installation need to be paid for separately.
